Harrison: Pats should have no trouble with Ravens

So the question, Rodney Harrison, is this:
Should Patriots fans be sweating the Baltimore Ravens?
"Not at all," the former Patriots safety and current NBC football analyst told Tom E. Curran Thursday on 'Quick Slants'.
"There's a lot of questions surrounding the Baltimore Ravens. If they're down 14 points, can they come back? Can Joe Flacco throw four or five touchdown passes? I don't think he can. Can they score, other than lining Ray Rice up? . . . Can they get a pass rush if Terrell Suggs is double teamed? . . .
"So many questions surrounding the Baltimore Ravens team. I don't believe they match up well this year against the New England Patriots. I think Tom Brady and that offense, they're in a zone. I don't think he's putting a lot of pressure on himself, like he has in the past.
"I believe the Patriots might even win by two touchdowns."

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
